Woot Woot!!!

I am excited on a number of fronts:
  1. The boy is healthy again. He's eating, climbing and bouncing off the walls as per his usual self. Most importantly he is sleeping at night!
  2. Canada has 13 medals! 1 more than I predicted and we haven't even had all the kayaking & canoing finals. Go Canada Go!
  3. I was nominated for a weblog award! I totally didn't expect this and am honored that Amanda thought of me.
I would like to think I am a considerate blogger, so I am passing this award on. Here are the rules:
  1. Put the logo on your blog.
  2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
  3. Nominate at least seven other blogs.
  4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.
  5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

Who to nominate? This is the hard part as there are so many awesome blogs out there, some which have already been nominated by others, candid engineer, madhatter, VWXYNot. Here we go:
  • IsisTheScientist for making me think of things I normally wouldn't, and for making me laugh when she blogs about things I do think about.
  • Dr.Jekyll and Mrs.Hyde for giving me hope in science.
  • EcoGeoFemme for blogging about how to get it done. She is taking the bull by the horns.
  • I have to nominate the bean mom for both introducing me to these awesome science blogs AND for being a wicked scientist and mother
  • AcmeGirl for talking about the challenges of being a mom AND a graduate student in the biological sciences - it can be done!
  • Now on with some of those mommy blogs that just make me hoot:
  • Mel for being a great listener and for some excellent coping tricks. Yeah happiness journals
  • HerBadMother for her complete and utter honesty about motherhood and her excellent take on feminist issues.
  • Tania at ChickyChickyBaby, who I wished lived in my neck of the woods instead of hers.

Aaaaw... thank you! That was a lovely surprise in an otherwise frustrating day. MUCH appreciated!

Isis the Scientist said...

Thank you! I enjoy reading your blog very much! I am glad I can offer an occasional chuckle.

I am giving your idea of blogging about how Dr. and Mr. Isis make the home front happen serious thought. You should expect a post in the future about it.

Dr. Isis

You're welcome.

Thanks, lady! After a day of chasing around a screaming, whining preschooler it's nice to be appreciated.

Thank you!

Glad to hear your boy is sleeping through the night now! (mine take turns doing that. But what I want is for BOTH to sleep through the SAME night!)
